Abstract

This article focuses on integration of the technology of iSENSE into the secondary education as a teaching and learning tool to design, develop, and infuse digital learning experiences that utilize technology. The objective of each lesson was to use this application to achieve redefinition, create new tasks previously inconceivable, and transform the education process using the SAMR model as presented by Dr. Ruben Puentedura. The objective was to create higher-order thinking tasks that have a significant impact on student learning. Data was collected from high school biology, chemistry, and biotechnology classrooms and integrated into lessons using iSENSE, a web based program, created from a collaborative effort of the University of Massachusetts Lowell and Machine Science Inc, for compiling, sharing, visualizing and analyzing data. Through our research, we were able to conclude that the utilization of iSENSE technology helps students manipulate data to gain a deeper understanding of math and science concepts and encourages further research in the 9-12 classroom.
